1  Re: Chocoholics Unanimous Rd 4 Gallery of Sweet Chocolatey Indulgence! in The Swap Gallery by panthera on: March 08, 2009 01:29:57 AM
I recieved....

My partner ellenmarie is like the most bestest, awesomest swap partner eva!!!

I think she went just a little overboard though, but I ain't complaining  Wink

First up

Recieved and opened

What you can see here is a chocolate messenger bag protecting the loot of chocolate below I suspect. Wink

(sorry about the colour, it doesn't photograph well and is an actual dark rich brown, not grey, ellenmarie if you have a good photo of the messenger bag could you please post a photo of it for me, thankyou Smiley )

Whoa!!!!....Now isn't that a impressive stash....
I wasn't expecting THAT much chocolate...LOL.....
The kids ate most of it though...and their dad.......honest  Wink Cheesy

My personal favorite is coming up........prepare to wist!!!!!
Are your wist buttons ready everybody???.......


Now aren't they bloody gorgeous!!!!....

Ellenmarie, you and your son must have spent AGES on these....they are PERFECT!!!
Thankyou so much!...I appreciate the time and perfection you have put into these pieces.

These are also pretty neat I was actually hoping for some stickers/scrapbooking things, you must have read my mind Wink

and last but not least....

2 x Fimo clay kits, I have wanted to try my hand at fimo....someone must've been stalking my wist  Wink Smiley
Ecstatic about the fimo....very hard to source that stuff over here and when you do it's very $$$...I am very appreciative!

Ellenmarie and son also sent some stuff for my kids (which I haven't posted photos of as yet)....which was nice of them (they didn't have too).

Sent for my kids:

2 x Wall-E colouring books
Wall-E sticker sheet
American $1 bill
Various American coins
A jar of whimsy items

Thankyou Ellenmarie and son you have both been great and have both put alot of thought and time into each craft you 2 have put your hands to (besides the chocolate itself  Wink ).

I am very appreciative and I hope you both like your swap package that I sent you as much as I liked the one you sent me  Grin

Hoping you have recieved by now and hoping to see pics soon  Smiley

I did a set of two "girly" plaque/hangers for sewsilly

I got the idea from a few I saw on Ebay and thought her daughter was the right age for bratz and tinkerbell.

I can't for the life of me find the bratz hanger photo but I do have the one of tinkerbell.....please excuse the blacked out background as at the time things in the background were a little messy...LOL

It is a painted plaque background with tinkerbell decoupaged on it and then coated with clear varnish.

Cheers Smiley

p/s- had fun doing them wouldn't mind doing them again sometime Smiley

W00T W00T W00T!!!!!!!..............
I have recieved a package from BroknWingz!!!!

I am shocked and all I can say is OMFG!!....we have been so spoilt in this household

My kiddies were so excited....they both heard the postie come up our driveway and were out the door before he was even half way up it....typical kids... Cheesy

Hubby went out and signed for it while the kids took off with it, both of them carted it inside.....they were going to just rip it open but I INSISTED on taking photos first  Wink

Here are my 2 cheeky monkeys awaiting the grand opening.


at this stage my daughter was squealing with excitement as she spotted 2 things that looked like Wall-E's Eve.....she was right there were 2 Eves especially for her and 2 Wall-E's especially for her brother.

2 happy munchkins

They then ran off to play with their new toys....ahhhhh....peace for 5 minutes until I pulled out this.........hubby is holding it up for the photo Wink

 Shocked Shocked Shocked.....look how much candy she shoved in there and there was more which I added to the same bag it filled all the way to the top Shocked Shocked Shocked, thats around a years worth for me  Wink..... I think the kids will make short work of it and a sweet tooth hubby will surely help as well Cheesy.....

I'd better not eat all that chocolate anyway otherwise I won't fit into the next thing she sent....BEHOLD

Yoga pants....... and they fit too...they are slightly loose on me though but that doesn't matter as with the next item she sent I can  make them a snug fit Grin

A silky orange tie belt to go with it, she put the tigers on it herself....I LOVE IT!  She also included a hemp/linen type cloth and t-shirt, that has similar tiger transfers on it, I can't take a good enough photo of them both so I'll just explain them instead. Roll Eyes

Then I spied these

A handmade COW bag/purse set (for my second favorite animal on my list), my daughter immediately squealed and said Mum, can I PLEASE have it....what could I say really....she then took off with both and proceeded to cart her dolls around in it and put her pretties in the purse typical girly girl she is....LOL.... Smiley

Then I came across this.....and it is SOOOOOO me...LOL Cheesy

It's a sheep door hanger (sheep was third favorite animal on my list) that says "SHEEPIN" instead of "SLEEPIN" I love the pun Wink.....and he is all mine...the kids wanted him but I stood my ground.....

And finally........

A beautiful, warm, soft handmade scarf......this is my favorite item I must say I absolutely adore it and have packed it away for winter....

BroknWingz absolutely spoilt me rotten, I just hope she likes what I have sent her...swappers anxiety I've got!!!

BroknWingz THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU for being an absolutely awesome swap partner (and for including things for my children)....you have gone above and beyond....
Honestly words cannot express.... Smiley

W00t! W00t! W00t!.......................

The postie arrived today with a package from........SUNSPOTTED!!!!!

I almost gave hubby a heart attack with my squeals of excitement (G-rated kind of course  Cheesy ) as I opened it and saw this.  Wink

Then I realised just how much fabric was in there...I have NEVER recieved this much fabric from anyone before  Smiley

My favorites are the paw print, trains, bugs, skulls, chocolate/teal/blue and the pet themed ones....

Also I reckon you are psychic because I actually needed this theme of fabric for the next swap I want to join.... Grin

THANKYOU very very very much Sunspotted!!!!....

No I haven't fallen off the face of the planet.. Cheesy

It's taken some time to post some photos because I've finally got my camera back....Woot!!....

 I had to go get it fixed......was having major camera withdrawals while it was gone too....I <3 my camera Grin

 Finally I can post some photos of what I've recieved so far..... Wink

Now because I forget who has sent me what I've just lumped it all together in 1 big lot...

THANKYOU to both eightdandelions and claire313.

I love everything you both sent me and I just have to say I had been wanting these things for a while and to actually recieve them....well I'm just lost for words.....I guess I'd just like you 2 to know that I am really grateful Smiley

Not everything is pictured, my daughter took off with most of the whimsy items including the handmade decorative box they came in.....I rescued what I could (she wouldn't part with most of it) and shoved the remainder in the tin, kids eh Roll Eyes

Ok people get ready to wist Smiley

Here's all my goodies from Riechan...

Just arrived and opened

3 AWESOME tiger themed goodies, a pincushion, a funky faux tiger fur journal (not bad for her first time either) AND tiger artwork which I am going to put on one of my notepads so it matches my journal.... Smiley

OMG OMG OMG A wist item.....you've definately been stalking my wist list haven't you  Cheesy.....BEADED SPIDER EARRINGS......(also not bad for first time either) I love them.

Aren't these just adorable Smiley  My daughters friends at school want to know where to get them, they want some too, so I guess I'll be trying my hand at making these soon....she was so excited to recieve something....so heres a action shot as well....she says THANKYOU Riechan  Grin

Ahhh whats this!.........another wisted item!....a pretty cupcake ring pincushion I LOVE it and so does my daughter so she's claimed it now  Cheesy

sea-themed artwork....which I love but my daughter had claimed... Cry  I might have to sneak it back off her  Wink

I sooo needed these you have no idea how handy these type things are for me...the P.E.C.S cards are in use as I type and the recipes have come in VERY handy

CHOCOLATE...(was still in one piece and didn't melt)...I admit it I'm a CHOCOHOLIC and PROUD of it......these are GONE...not by me either  Wink.....it was the kids.....HONEST Grin Wink ....nah it's true the kids demolished it...as they were eating it I read about the 6 DEC thing in your letter....LOL.

Group shot...... Grin

You've been a FANTASTIC and thoughtful swap partner Riechan.
